work sucks, riding a segway all day sounds almost as awesome as eating burritos all day, which of course soudns better than work
My thing is travel with my wife. water sport, helicopters, boating, playing games with friends, meeting new people, walk outside my house thinking about a new adventure. Maybe go around the world in a segway… can you image… what adventure!!!
The theatrical tour was a blast, though I must admit, 23 cities was a little insane. On the drive home from Texas, Kelly (our comrade and publicist) was putting together the list of his favorite locations from best to worst. He liked Brattleboro the best (cool town in VT and we had 200 people show up to see the movie on a MONDAY night). His least favorite place was Kansas City (I won’t say why). I have a hard time coming up with favorites, but definitely enjoyed DC (sold out) and Austin (packed audience at the Drafthouse). Every city had its own reason to shine - here’s a quick list:
Seattle - it was my birthday.
Boise - 2nd time to screen at The Flicks.
Jackson Hole - Everyone vibed on the film and we sold a ton of DVDs.
Paonia - A beautiful small town that is undiscovered and Robin was wonderful.
Denver - Denver Film Society hooked us up with 12 screenings of the film - we rocked!
Kansas City - Stayed with the Coulters, a family featured in the movie.
St. Louis - Principia community came out to support - (my alma matter).
Chicago - Some old lady wanted to watch Once, but ended up in our theater. She started off the Q&A by bitchin’ me out.
Madison - We (me & Kelly) were on an NPR show and Kelly pretended to be an associate producer. The DJ called him out on it when he mentioned later that he got involved after the film was done.
Minneapolis - I love you Lagoon. The best Landmark experience we had.
Lansing - Home of our one and only - j.fred.
Cleveland - Robin and Eric (featured in the movie) introduced me to Tuscan Toast. Amen.
Lititz - Horse & Buggies from all around came to see the Amish scene in the movie.
Brunswick, ME - I got the biggest piece of hate email I’ve ever had from this community, but aside from that I really dug Gil and his cool operation.
Boston - Gus didn’t have the Grape Nuts Ice Cream, but he showed up to see himself on the big screen.
Brattleboro - One heck of a surprise audience - 200 - and McNeils.
DC - A surprise mob scene and a great Washington Post article.
Philadelphia - Two words - cheese steaks.
Wilmington, NC - Huka Turkish ladies and a good time with Richard, the local Segway dealer.
Gulf Breeze - I rode a Segway down to introduce the movie for the 1st time. It was another surprise crowd.
Austin - The Alamo Drafthouse rocks and so did j.fred on the phone in Q&A.
Dallas - I love the Big D. We had 100 people on a Monday night.
San Antonio - I met Lamar Smith who attended our screening.
I thought for a small while that the man was not so huge
but it was when he stood on the curb instead of the ground that i realized that this was no ordinary man.
I ran for my life very quickly, and fast, but could not get away. when he caught me i knew in my mind that i was a goner, but he mearly asked my name and shook my hand.
My thing is spending some of my free time volunteering with Operation Gratitude, an organization which provides care packages to troops stationed in Iraq. It would be reall nice if Chipotle offered to donate some items-tshirts, frisbees, etc for our next drive Xmas 2007! See the website for Operation Gratitude at Operationgratitude.com
My thing is spending time with my family. Hiking, boating, playing board games or just taking the dog out for a walk, it’s the simple time together which bonds us.
I like to watch football and baseball in my spare time, but my thing to do is collecting baseball caps!
This would be grerat transportation for me with my damm bad knees
my thing is glass. mosaics specifically. i can get lost in the tiny pieces for hours. the movie is groovy.
